Welcome to the #missionaladventure web portal - the place for you to discover a world of missional opportunities for you and your church...
With ideas to inspire you,
training to equip you,
and networks to connect you,
all just a click away!
If we are following wherever Jesus is leading us we will often find ourselves involved in something which is risky, exciting and a little bit scary. Across our Baptist family individuals and churches are finding themselves on all sorts of different missional adventures, and we hope these pages will enable you to discover the particular adventure that he is calling you to embark upon. We hope that what you find here will both inspire and challenge you. The mission of God invites us to be open to His leading in all aspects of our ordinary everyday lives, but it sometimes means leaving behind all that we find familiar and comfortable and stepping into the unknown.
We are delighted that Andy Flannagan has written a song for Baptists Together to inspire and encourage us as we embark on adventurous journeys of faith. You can download the chord chart here, the melody score and a full piano score.
C.S.Lewis, in his book "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" expresses it well in a conversation the children have with Mr. and Mrs. Beaver ahead of their meeting with Aslan - who in the story represents Jesus...
Mr. Beaver says: “Aslan is a lion – the Lion, the great Lion.”
“Ooh” said Susan. “I’d thought he was a man. Is he – quite safe? I shall feel rather nervous about meeting a lion”…
“Safe?” said Mr. Beaver… “Who said anything about safe?
Course he isn’t safe… But he is good!”
That's what those who are commended as faithful in Hebrews 11 discovered, and we hope the opportunities and events on these pages will enable you to rediscover it for yourself too.
You can explore by the missional opportunities by type and resource
